Remington 700

Postby ALaguaite » Sun Feb 24, 2013 8:06 am

Hey fellas I just picked up a remington 700 sendero 300 win mag yesterday and was looking for some advice on scopes and a bipod. I would like to go with a BDC for around $300-400. And i want a solid bipod for around $100. Any input is appreciated. Thanks

Need a little more information. What are you going to hunt with the gun? What distances? Do you want a variable scope?

I have a Leuopold VX-3 3x9x50 on my Rem. 700 win mag sighted in at 300 yards. I havent looked at scope prices lately but that used to be around the $500 mark. Redfield also is a nice scope, have one on my. 270.

In that price range you will probably want a Nikon with 14+ magnification... Try looking at the Monarch and Buckmaster... good luck that is a tack driver.

Can't go wrong with Nikon scopes. I run them on all my rifles as does my buddy. Never had an issue with any of them. :thumbsup:

Sorry bout that I should have clarified. Well I would like to accurately shoot up to 500 with this one. I bought it for an elk hunt in Colorado this year and because I got a steak for only $600.

Vortex has some very good scopes with awesome BDC reticles for decent prices. I'd recommend Harris bipods

another vote for Nikon or Luepold.

and go to Midway USA and grab some Caldwell bipods for $45. I have 2 sets of them and they both work great!

That's an awfully nice rifle to be sticking a $300 scope on. Personally I'd go at least with a Zeiss Conquest. If you're planning on shooting at 500 yards that glass is gonna be just as if not more important than the rifle it's sitting on
